People on the net talked about the Bulls/Knicks matchup before the
season (esp after the Stanley Roberts trade). So atlast we can see
the awaited action; they play in the MSG at 1.00 pm on Saturday.
Riley's team has however not lived upto preseason expectations
mainly because Charles Smith has usually been given very few minutes and
the I think the team needs 20+ points from him to take away all the
double/triple teams faced by Ewing. John Starks looked very good against
Minnesota (although looking good against them is not a big deal :-) )
TBS (Channel 24, NJ) will carry the game instead of MSG (86).

Hoping for the Bull's 3rd loss.

Go NY

You called that one.  I expected the Bulls to lose this one as it was
at the end of a looong road trip, but I thought it would be close with
NY pulling away in the 4th quarter.  This wasn't even close.  The
Bulls were rarely able to get closer than 6-8 feet to the basket; with
the "slash" removed from their open court game, they tried to fall
back on the outside shot (which they have been hitting with some
regularity on this trip), but they were cold as ice (much of this was
due to the fact that they rarely got off an uncontested shot from
within 18 feet).

And, the final score was a laugher by 40 some points, and it wasn't
even that close..

The Knicks played very well, particularly the two big men - Ewing and
Oakley who dominated the boards....  I heard that this snaps a 11 game
winning regular season winning streak for the Bulls over the Knicks.

Looking forward to the rematch in the friendly confines...

Well NY didn't beat Bulls they swamped them.
This again shows how much Bulls depend on MJ.  It's not that their
game went into pieces against NYs definitely better defense, but it
was never put together in the first place.
Jordan got injured and went out of play for about 8-9 mins in the first half,
and was nowhere close to the 40+ a game Jordan he was on the west coast trip.
At one time he was 1-11 or something.  And the Bulls stunk at the FT line.

The offense was being carried completely by Jordan all these games and when
he didn't play well for once no one seems to know what to do.  Like you
said what the hell was Grant doing shooting from 15'?

Maybe this is what Knicks needed to get their offensive act together.  Playing
the Bulls certainly seems to have woken them up.

Maybe the Bulls should leave their "Why drive when you can fly?" aside and
start driving to the basket more.

I am a passionate Bulls fan and have been one since I came to the US
in 1985.  I, however, see no dichotomy in acknowledging the opposition
when they outplay my team.

What do you find so offensive in the above post and WHERE did I laugh
at the Bulls?

I said (a) the Bulls played badly (b) the Knicks played very well and
(c) that (a) was (atleast in part) due to (b).  Anything untrue,
offensive, derisive, unpleasant, traitorous to the Bulls in the above.

I see from the paper that those were pretty much a mirror of Phil
Jackson's comments.  I get it.. its OK for a coach to say that Oakley
and Ewing were great, but when a fan says it its laughing....

I guess you were joking, right?:-)  Ehhh, I hope so...

   boy...what a mature retort.  don't lose sight of the fact that it is just a game, and only ONE of 82.  if the bulls win the finals, then they win the finals.  no big deal.  but i don't think the world is going to end if the knicks win.  come on, twin...get some perspective. really...it is ONLY a game...

   they just might!  no biggie.
